Judge rules pull tab operators owe nearly $1 million in back taxes

Posted: Monday, February 05, 2001

JUNEAU (AP)-- A judge has ruled that local pull tab operators should pay a 1-percent sales tax on their gross receipts.

Three Juneau pull tab operators appealed a city decision that the sales tax passed by voters in 1996 applied to pull tabs. Retired Supreme Court Justice Jay Rabinowitz turned down the appeal, however, by Last Chance Co-op, Multiple Charities Association Co-op and the Alaska Native Brotherhood Camp 2.

Rabinowitz last week also threw out the pull tab operators' request for a trial and granted the city's request for a summery judgment for payment of about $900,000 in back taxes.

The pull tab operators can appeal the Superior Court decision to the State Supreme Court.
